    Heya team...

    I recently was visiting a friend and fellow board members place and had the opportunity to take a first hand look at United Scourge.
    Our discussion about the figure started to focus on the limited differences between the United, and general release. I was a bit underwhelmed by the lack of details on United Scourge, so I made a mental note to see about a better way to have a more "premium" look to Scourge.
    Today I spent a couple of hours with the figure, and here is what I've come up with so far...

    I took apart his head and painted the clear parts of his eyes and light piping with a clear red. The same clear red was used on his fingers, and then I brushed 3 light coats of Metallic Blue Sapphire over the dark blue...I am still contemplating some added detail to the facial hair, and possibly panel lining, but I wanted to get a feel for what folks think of his base colors as they are now.
    Sorry about the cluttered pics...my workspace is always a WIP.

    Thanks for looking!

    This is exactly how the United version of the figure should have been painted. It looks gorgeous. I'm totally jealous. Nicely done!

    So this was done to a United version or you paint a Gen. version to better represent the United idea? Either way, great job! Hell, can you do one for me?

    LOL Thanks you guys!

    This was done to just a regular "off the peg" figure...I'm uncertain as to how the metallic blue would look in combination with the darker blues on a United Scourge...You can bet I will be discussing this with my buddy in the near future.

    There was a ton of flashing on mine as well...not to mention I noticed alot of really bad seams, and when I opened up his head, the light piping was cracked in a couple of spots...very disconcerting.
    I was going to go with the pink nails, but I couldnt bring myself to do it...a nice rich red was acceptable for my display.

    Thanks!

    LoL I dunno if that is what we had in mind but we'll see...

    I didn't do a stripe on the wing, but that doesn't mean I couldn't still...not a bad idea considering that is an app the regular version does not have.

    Thanks!

    Your base colors look great. I like that shade of blue. If there's one thing the Hasbro version is missing it's a continuation of the blue on the front of the plane in alt mode. I think it would look great if it went all the way down the front of the wing.

    Yeah I've had a couple of people suggest that, and I believe that's going to be the next step with this guy...also maybe a different color for the beige areas on the forearms.

    Thanks!
